Sony has announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Haven Studios, but the financial details of the deal remain unknown. Haven Studios and Sony have been in partnership for over a year, and after the acquisition, Haven became one of the first titles for PlayStation Studios.

Haven Studios was founded by Jade Raymond, an Assassin’s Creed producer and former head of Stadia Games and Entertainment. This new game studio was founded by Jade Raymond last March.

Although it was an independent company, it was backed by Sony and the first project is said to be a new intellectual property for the PlayStation. Details about that first game remain undisclosed, but Jade Raymond says the team has “made amazing progress.”

We started working with Jade and her team in early 2021 when they were on the verge of announcing the formation of Haven Studios. From the very first talk, we’ve been inspired by Haven’s vision to create a modern multiplayer game that brings players together in a positive and meaningful way. We were confident in their creative and technical expertise to bring such an ambitious project to fruition and were delighted to be investing in their development of new original intellectual property for the PlayStation.

AMD will not remain a monopolist in the console market

The second-generation Nintendo Switch console, whatever it’s called, looks set to once again be based on Nvidia’s single-chip system.

AMD will not remain a monopolist in the console market.  The next Nintendo Switch will likely use the Nvidia platform again

This conclusion is made by sources based on a new Nvidia vacancy. The company is looking for a tool engineer for game console developers.

Considering that Sony and Microsoft have long opted for AMD solutions, the current Nintendo Switch is based on SoC Tegra, and no other major companies seem to be going to seriously enter the console market, it is most likely that we are talking about the development platforms for the new Nintendo console. True, this may mean that such a prefix will not be released soon.

By the way, the other day Nintendo itself indirectly confirmed that it would continue to use the Nvidia platform in its new console. The company said that it is very important for it to maintain the continuity of generations and implement a smooth transition. And the easiest way to do this is to keep the platform of the same manufacturer.

Probably, at the moment AYANEO2 is the most powerful device in the segment, since the same AYANEO NEXT and ONEXPLAYER Mini are based on the Ryzen 7 5800U. As for the Steam Deck, it is architecturally similar to AYANEO2 in terms of the graphics subsystem, only the Radeon 680M, which is part of the Ryzen 7 6800U, has 50% more computing units and 600 MHz higher GPU frequency. Therefore, the performance is 3.38 TFLOPS versus 1.6 TFLOPS in favor of the Chinese news. This is about graphics, but in terms of CPU, AYANEO2 also has an advantage: 8 cores, 16 threads and a maximum frequency of 4.7 GHz versus 4 cores, 8 threads and a frequency of 3.5 GHz for Steam Deck.
